bambu Introduces Over 20 New Products for 2007

We've been consistently impressed with bambu's work ever since we saw their natural utensils and Lacquerware bowls way back in 2004, and their new products in the 2007 collection continue this trend. They've always been great at combining beautiful designs with superb functionality, so it comes as no surprise that the new products manage to do both. The "Spoontula" (above, left) combines a spoon and spatula to create a unique kitchen multi-tasker; the patented design comes from Godefroy de Virieu, who is a member of bambu's "design collective" and also designed the Give It a Rest series (among others). bambu is also introducing a new color range for its Lacquerware series this year, including bold colors like Cayenne, Red Pepper and Kiwi green (above, center). Also new this year is the ingenious Chop Scoop & Serve cutting boards (above, right). The boards are designed to handle several functions: chop and scoop on one side, serve on the other. One end includes a hollowed out taper to provide an easy method to move your freshly chopped ingredients to the plate or pan. Turn it over, and you have a serving tray with a bowl area neatly integrated into the board. As with all of bambu's utensils, bowls, trays and more, they're made with organically-grown bamboo and finished with food-safe oils. These three are just the beginning; bambu's Kids line of utensils and cute "Curvy Servers" also make their debut this year, along with the Snapstix we mentioned last year. bambu will be showcasing their new products for 2007, over 20 in all, at the International Home & Housewares March 11-13, 2007 in Chicago, and all their new products are now available at the "bambu Boutique" at greenfeet.com. ::bambu, see also ::bambu Goo and ::Best of TH: Sustainable Designers
